"Thanks again so much for a great day fishing. My dad and I had a great time. Good luck with the softball in Mankato and drive safe." - Matt (Red Wing trip 09/23/11)

Vertical bite was on the last couple days I was out

Friday morning I met Marty and Brian at Everett's Resort.  After spending about 40 minutes getting the boat unfrozen from the boat trailer we did not take long to put walleyes and saugers in the boat.  We fished several areas on this date searching for the hottest bite.  Well worth the searching for my trip on Saturday went great.   Brian and Marty it was great to be back on the water after the long break with me spending lots of time in the woods deer hunting.

Saturday morning Steve, John and I launched out of Everett's again (thanks Steve and Carrie for keeping them ramps clean).  We went straight to one of the areas I had fished the day before and wow the bite was very good today.  That pre fishing really pays off.  We caught lots of walleyes and saugers today with the biggest getting up around the 20 mark I believe.  

Steve and John caught onto the technique pretty fast today.  I am glad you gentlemen enjoyed our day on pool 4 today and I look forward to another great time on the mighty Mississippi River with you gentlemen in the future.  The weather was on our side today too which made it easier to be comfortable.  

The flow is a little high for this time of the year running at 11000 cfps.  The water temperature dropped a whopping 12 degrees since I was out last.  The nice thing is the fish are biting.  And wow they have lots of shad in their bellies.  Be safe there are lots of floating icebergs on the river.   

Good luck out there guys and gals!!!!
